“Small room but ideal location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

In a nutshell:

The hotel was right between 2 major metro lines (4 and 6) and very close to the Montparnasse train station.

We were also walking distance to everything! (if you're up for it, or you can take the subway/bus)

The room was very small... but that's Paris for you! (and we only came back to sleep anyway, we were out most of the day!) The bathroom was updated and very nice.

The staff was friendly any time we needed anything or had questions.

We did not have the breakfast there as it was cheaper to buy at a café down the street.

We would recommend this hotel to people who are laid back and wanting to save some $$ but want to be in an ideal location.

Room Tip: The a/c worked best if you kept the curtains closed and the bathroom door shut. ;)

We stayed here for 3 nights in August for a romantic getaway.

The hotel is very similar to other Paris hotels we have stayed in. It was a small room, but no smaller than any other we have experienced, with a good bathroom/wetroom with a shower. The bed was large and comfortable, and the amenities in the room were good - TV, toiletries, mini bar etc. Housekeeping were efficient and friendly, as were the concierge who were happy to communicate either in English or my own somewhat poor French.

Breakfast was good, a variety of pastries, cereals, breads, yoghurt, fruit etc, with the option of eggs and bacon if requested for a further fee. The breakfast was buffet style which was kept well topped up.

The location of the hotel was on a main road, within 5-10 minutes walk of at least 3 metro stations. We found it to be a good base for exploring, with some nice bistros around the area.

In short, we enjoyed our stay and pretty much couldn't fault it. Would stay again if I was choosing in the same price range.

It wasn't what we were expecting for our honeymoon, but it was nice enough. We booked through Virgin Vacations, and this hotel was an upgrade from the basic offering (which happened to be at the airport). The location of the hotel was quite conveinent to major sites as well as pretty comfortable metro station.

Very friendly and helpful staff, nice rooms, good location. Ticks every box for me.
For a continental breakfast I was quite impressed too.
A stones throw from a main metro and Montparnasse tower, easy to get to anywhere in Paris. Looking forward to our next stay there.

Lovely hotel, good sized room and bathroom. Concierge was very friendly, patient with my terrible French and happy to speak English. The only negative was perhaps that its on a fairly main road, although plenty of shopping to be had!

This is a small, charming hotel. This was my second visit and was very happy again. The location is fantastic -- near three metro stops, good shopping, local restaurants. The breakfast buffet was good, but the coffee was only okay. The rooms are small but comfortable.

Our room was decent sized. The bathroom was even better. Very clean, quaint and beautiful boutique hotel. Excellent water pressure. Our bed was extremely comfortable. We were at the very top floor with amazing views to the front of the hotel. The area is Montparnasse. Very close to the metro and many local eateries and lots of stores. The staff is friendly and speak English. We have no complaints. It can be a bit noisy since the street that the hotel is on is very busy. But. Who cares?! We loved our stay and will stay there again when in Paris again!
